Bring a little bit of the great beyond into your bathroom with new cotton towels from ThinkGeek. They have two towel sets available: one features the TARDIS from Doctor Who and the other has the Enterprise from Star Trek. Each towel set includes a bath, hand, and face towel, and you’ll be prepared for anything if you carry them all at the same time.

It seems the TARDIS has run into a little trouble by the looks of these set photos snapped by Colin Waymark. They’re images from filming that is taking place in Cardiff and they have Peter Capaldi wandering around a smaller than usual TARDIS. Why? We don’t know. How? We don’t know. All your questions will have to wait until new episodes air, and even then we’ll probably all be left with more questions than answers.

It’s always struck me as a little odd that the key to the TARDIS wasn’t more intricate. On one hand, a plain key suits the Doctor, but on the other hand, I’d love to collect some artful keys. It turns out a few of the previous Doctors had fancier versions, and you can see them in Terrasolo’s key collection.
She made the piece to celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, and she used screen caps and production photos for reference. Where she couldn’t find quality images, she made an educated guess. For example, she’s not sure if the Sixth Doctor’s key was ever seen on screen.

Calling all Harry Potter and Doctor Who fans! This post is for you because it features a sonic screwdriver wand in a TARDIS-inspired wand box. I think both Harry and the Doctor would consider this creation a magical mash-up.
Both designs are by Instructables user CabbitCastle. He was asked to make a wand fashioned after the Tenth Doctor’s sonic. He created plans in Photoshop and used a lathe to fabricate the wand while the wand box was made from poster board and foam pads. He wrote thorough tutorials for each project so you can create a sonic wand and case of your very own. This craft is definitely going onto my to-do list!

Sure, The Doctor may have his sonic screwdriver, but we 21st-century humans have something almost as good: smartphones! The only drawback is that you have to charge them frequently. But now Doctor Who fans can charge their smartphones, especially their iPhones, with this cool Doctor Who TARDIS iPhone Stand. It’s laser-etched, and is made from blue acrylic. It also holds a notch for a charger. Added bonus: you don’t need The Eye of Harmony to power this TARDIS! You’re welcome.

Now that Doctor Who is a go for Lego, the concepts are starting to trickle in to Lego Cuusoo. This idea for a Doctor Who Lego Set is definitely the most promising thus far. The design is the work of Andrew Clark who has been designing video games for the last 13 years but clearly has found his true calling.
The 530-piece set would include TARDIS interior and exterior walls, interior console, street, interior base, K9 and a Dalek. He’s also proposed 2 Doctor minifigs and 2 Companion minifigs that he hasn’t quite decided on yet. His suggestion is to have one older Doctor and one newer Doctor to make all the fans happy. There’s also the possibility of a Weeping Angel and even a Cyberman.

This amazing Temporal Schism Doctor Who Keyblade was handmade by deviantArtist SoulessStranger. She made it as a custom order out of layered plywood that was carved by hand with chisels and a dremel. The windows were done with matchsticks and a bit of resin. While the handle and key/crown are done in silver and brass spray paint, the rest of it is entirely hand painted.

Should you be in Gothenburg, Sweden anytime soon, there’s a bookstore there you’ll have to drop into.
Aside from the fact that Science Fiction Bokhandeln is a two-story nerd book palooza, they also have a TARDIS elevator.
I’d ride that thing all day.
